Once again, we are really pleased to be able to announce that we have been awarded a prestigious Green Flag. This means that Sun Rising has been judged as one of the best ‘green spaces’ in the country, with the highest environmental standards.
We first won an award in 2015, and this year our scores are once again extremely high. The Green Flag Awards have a meticulous process, exploring the whole management system of a site. Two experienced judges go through the management plan, maintenance strategies, and ideas for the future. They look at sustainability and measures to protect and improve the environment. They are keen to discover the visitor experience, access, health and safety, and opportunities for volunteers.
Of course, there are always ways we can do better. The wildflower meadow in the photo is still in development, the butterfly stones are being created, and infrastructure improvements are ongoing. If you have any suggestions, we are always keen to hear!
